Italian
il Giallo (pronounced il-JAH-lo) is a partnership between Leonardo Moura and Chef Jamie Adams and their goal is to transport you to a little piece of Italy.
While il Giallo means both “Yellow” and “Mystery” in Italian, yellow, the color of the yolk, the sun and the grains, it represents il Giallo’s wholesomeness; the ingredients used will be responsibly sourced, fresh and flavorful. Mystery represents the new, different and exciting flavors and aromas found throughout the constantly evolving il Giallo menu.
We strive to accurately represent the foods and flavors found in the towns and villages along Italy’s Coastal regions, the freshest imaginable hand-made pastas found in the mountains and plains and lest we for forget, the bounty of cured meats, cheeses and olive oils from north to south.
We want to become an extension of your home by providing a comfortable and inviting atmosphere where you will want to spend time with friends and family.

Sharon is special bartender. Always gleeful. Good drinks including mudslide desert.
Food is always good abd specials were special this visit. Pounded swordfish not fishy and pasta special was rich.
Service always great. This time we had Virginia, another joyful soul.

Everything great except masks not required to enter even though mgmt said they are. Said they take temps but saw none of it. Just about everyone, except staff walking through restaurant without masks. Very disappointed in this. Will support restaurants who insist on masks except while eating.

Our first visit. Delicious food. Opted to dine inside due to warm weather rather than outdoor patio seating, which is a great option. Our server was informed, warm and took the time to explain the preparation of many of the dishes, as well as the evening’s specials. Fantastic, attentive service that was not over bearing. We had two different entree’s, and 2 apps. Everything delicious. Wonderful dining experience; we’ll return.

We had a fabulous birthday dinner for my best friend. We felt completely comfortable dining indoors. Our temps were taken at the door, staff was masked and tables were spread way further than expected! Most importantly, the food and service were AMAZING!!

Best Italian dinner we have had in a long time. Ate outside. Friendly service. Food was terrific. A little pricey for every day dining but portions were ample and we made 2 meals out of it. We will return soon

The best for fine Italian dining, outdoors during Covid 19 Pandemic. We could not have asked for better service, more delicious food or a safer feeling environment. We are too cautious to eat inside, but it you are willing, they appeared to have tables well spread for maximum safety. It was a quite hot on the patio, but they can't control the weather.
We enjoyed two different seafood specials: swordfish and flounder. Both were impeccably prepared with interesting ingredients that complemented the fish. We also had a pasta taglioti (?)which my friend raved about.
Give them a try, you will not be disappointed.

Dinner here with my husband and my 19-year-old son is ALWAYS fabulous. Every sever we have ever had has been excellent- friendly, smart, informative, responsive. Food is always great - lasagne and veal chop are favorites as are all the salads and appetizers. At least get an order of fresh pasta to share at the table.... it is so delicious.

The video the staff did about changes they have made due to covid 19 is very good. We wanted indoor dining and it was very nice . The tables were space further apart was a change we noticed. Food and service was perfect , calamari, crazy lasagna,tonnarelli and peach cobbler.

Met an old friend after too long away and confined. We had fabulous beverages, safety in numbers, the best meatballs known to this planet and most importantly- a warm convivial experience of socializing. By the way- Jamie and his food are the most gracious you will ever find-Italian or otherwise.

What a treat to enjoy gourmet level food, outside, in a safe environment! Safety first, we were able to reserve an outside table which was a requirement for us. Although it’s a rather make shift arrangement adjoining the parking lot, tables were covered and comfortable.
We felt like honored guests as we received warm and attentive service throughout our visit. The food was also stellar. My husband enjoyed a beautifully presented halibut entree and I had a tagelli ravioli with mushrooms that was out of this world. We look forward to returning soon!

The service, food and wine were all first rate. We ate outside, since some seats are available under the outdoor awning because of the Covid impact, and that was just as pleasant as indoors historically has been.

Found the menu limited but that is to be expected these days. Was hoping for branzino. My smoked salmon didn’t have much of a smoked flavor. It was good but not smokey to my taste.
My husband was surprised there was no spaghetti or anything served with the veal Parmesan.
I think we were a bit underwhelmed having not eaten here in a while.
Not sure we’ll be back as we line other Italian restaurants more.

We had a great dinner here last night. DELICIOUS food included the agnolotti, filet, roasted cauliflower and Insalata di Rucola. The wine was heavenly too. Great service, and VERY SAFE. The tables were spaced out and all staff wore masks. I missed this place and was so glad to come back.

Had dinner Saturday night with a client/friend. We both ordered the night's specials: Flounder & Lamb tenderloin. Both were exceptionally good and perfectly prepared. Then we split the peach cobbler. Couldn't have been a better finish. Jamie Adams is a great talent. Will be back soon.

Table of 6 adults, 2 children. Food was, as always, excellently prepared, including a couple of special requests. Our server, Maurice, was exceptional--attentive, congenial, knowledgeable of the menu and how offerings were prepared. We will ask for him on our next visit, which will be soon. Excellent implementation of coronavirus protocols. Il Giallo is a neighbor gem that never disappoints.
